What adjectives that best describe your wedding? Personal, joyous, casually elegant.

What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? McKay and I love our family and friends dearly, so McKays parents backyard was the perfect location for us to invite our guests in and have everyone really feel at home. We just wanted everyone to have a wonderful time in a place that was very special to us. The backyard is so beautiful and green that I didnt want to detract at all from the natural beauty that was around us, which is why I chose such muted pale colors. We are very fortunate that we were able to have our wedding there.

Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? Everything!!! But if I have to choose one, it was being able to celebrate the most important and special day of our lives surrounded by the people we love, in a place we love – how lucky can two people get?
